Creating A System Banner
Article Id #: 474

The system banner is displayed on all systems that connect to your Patton device via Telnet, SSH, or a serial connection. It appears at login and is useful for sending messages that affect administrators and operators, such as scheduled maintenance or system shutdowns. By default no banner is present on login. To create a system banner use the banner command followed by the message you want displayed. If the banner message has to be formed out of more than one word the information is enclosed by double quotes. Adding the escape sequence “\n” to the string forming the banner creates a new line on the connected terminal screen and enclose it all in ". Use the no banner command to delete the message.

Here is one example of creating one, type in as follows:

>enable
>configure
>system banner "WARNING!\nThis US Government computer is for authorized users only. By\naccessing this system you are consenting to complete monitoring with\nno expectation of privacy. Unauthorized access or use may subject you\nto disciplinary action and criminal prosecution."


This should display as:


WARNING!
This US Government computer is for authorized users only. By
accessing this system you are consenting to complete monitoring with
no expectation of privacy. Unauthorized access or use may subject you
to disciplinary action and criminal prosecution.
